The linguistic meaning of Hajj is seeking or intending. Thus the people of Allah are constantly performing Hajj because they are constantly seeking Allah. Just as their whole year is Ramadan, likewise their whole year is Hajj. Just as those performing Hajj respond to the call of Allah by saying “labbayk” they are swift to respond to the call of Allah. They take themselves to account and leave that which is disliked and dubious in all their states and actions. They reject the desires of their lower selves and they are the furthest of people from that which is prohibited. They constantly receive new blessings from their Lord so they constantly renew their ihram. Day and night they make tawaf around the House of their Lord, the One to Whom they turn themselves with absolute sincerity until nothing remains in them which is directed to other than Allah.

The bounty of Allah is available at all times of the day and night. This is why Allah swears by the morning light (duha) and by the night that He has not forsaken His Beloved (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), nor is He displeased with him.

If the Hajj has not been made possible for you, join with those making Hajj and share in their reward: by spending your wealth for the sake of Allah on your relatives, on the needy, by turning to Allah with your whole being. Make numerous your footsteps to good places, especially at the time of Fajr, and you will receive glad tidings from the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace): “Give glad tidings of complete light on the Day of Judgement to those who walk constantly to the mosque in the darkness.”

Those whose light is complete will no doubt be in his company (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) "...on the day when Allah will not humble the Prophet and the believers along with him; their light will be running ahead of them and on their right..." [Al-Tahrim, 66:8]

Ask to be present with them, and thank Allah for allowing our spirits to be with them. So many hearts in the far East or the far West receive the gifts of `Arafat and Mina because of their truthfulness with Allah.

..:: Actions that carry the reward of Hajj ::..


Nothing of course can equal actually performing the Hajj and worshipping Allah in those blessed places. However, since Allah knows that many people long to make Hajj every year but are unable to do so out of His generosity He made the reward for certain actions similar to the reward of a supererogatory Hajj.

1. Remembering Allah from Fajr until Ishraq: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “Whoever who prays Subh (Fajr) in congregation and then sits in the place where he prayed remembering Allah until the sun rises and then prays two rakats has the reward of a complete Hajj and `Umrah.” He repeated “complete” three times. [Narrated by al-Tirmidhi]

2. Attending a gathering of knowledge: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “The one who goes out to the mosque wanting only to learn good or teach it has the reward of a complete Hajj.” [Narrated by al-Tabarani]

3. Going to the mosque for the congregational prayer: The Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “Whoever performs ablution in his house and then goes out to perform the obligatory prayer in the mosque has a reward similar to the reward of a Hajj pilgrim. Whoever goes out to perform the mid-morning prayer (Duha) has a reward similar to the reward of the one performing `Umrah.”

4. Reciting dhikr after the five daily prayers: Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated that a group of destitute people came to the Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam (may Allaah exalt his mention), and said, “O Messenger of Allah, the wealthy people will have higher grades and will have permanent enjoyment in high levels in Paradise. They pray like us and fast as we do, but they have more money by which they perform the Hajj, ‘Umrah, participate in Jihaad and give in charity.” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam (may Allaah exalt his mention), replied: “Shall I not tell you something upon which if you acted you would catch up with those who have surpassed you? Nobody would surpass you and you would be better than the people amongst whom you live except those who would do the same. Say ‘Subhan Allah’, ‘alHamdu Lillaah’ and ‘Allahu Akbar’ thirty-three times each after every (compulsory) prayer.’" [Sahih al-Bukhari]

5. Reciting Durud upon the beloved Prophet: The Leader of the God wary [Imām al-Muttaqīn] SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam affirmed, “Perform your Fardh (obligatory) Hajj pilgrimage. Undoubtedly, its reward is greater than participating in twenty Gazwah and reciting one Durūd upon me, equals that (in reward).” [Firdaus-bima’ Šaur al-Khitab, Vol. 2, Page 607, Hadīth 2484]

6. Performing I’itikaf for ten days in the month of Ramadan: Imam Bayhaqi has reported on the authority of Hadrat Imam Hussain that the Messenger of Allah has stated, “whosoever performs I’itikaf for ten days in the month of Ramadan, it is as though he has performed two ‘Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) and two Hajj (greater pilgrimage).”

7. Performing the Friday Prayer: Sayyiduna Sa`id bin al-Musayyib said performing the Friday Prayer is “more beloved to me than a supererogatory Hajj.”

8. Performing the Eid Prayer: Ibn Rajab (may Allah have mercy upon him) narrated that the Companion Sayyiduna Mikhnaf ibn Sulaym (may Allaah be pleased with him) said, “The reward for attending ‘Eid Al-Fitr prayer is equal to the reward of performing ‘Umrah and the reward for attending ‘Eid Al-Ad'ha Prayer is equal to that of performing Hajj.”

9. Fulfilling the needs of your brother or sister: Sayyiduna Hasan al-Basri said: “Going to fulfil the need of your brother is better for you than performing Hajj after Hajj.”

10. Being good to your parents: The Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) commanded one of the Companions to be good to his mother. If you do so, he said: “You are a Hajj pilgrim, a person performing `Umrah and someone striving for the sake of Allah (mujahid).”

11. Abandoning sins and prohibitions: Some of our righteous predecessors said, “Giving up a misdeed that Allah The Exalted abhors is dearer to me than performing Hajj 500 times.”

12. Performing obligatory actions: The slave can only draw near to Allah by performing supererogatory actions after first having performed that which is obligatory. This includes purifying one’s heart from forbidden attributes and guarding one’s tongue and limbs from committing forbidden actions. All of this is much harder on the lower self than many supererogatory acts of worship.

Finally there is no action more beloved to Allah on the Day of Eid than making a sacrifice. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) told his beloved daughter Sayyida Fatima al-Zahrah that she would be forgiven for her previous wrongdoings with the first drop of blood to be shed from the sacrificed animal. She asked if this reward was specifically for the household of the Prophet and he replied: “For us and for all the Muslims.”

| HAJJ | – THE GREATER PILGRIMAGE

Hadrat ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhuma reported that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam has stated,

يا أيها الناس كتب عليكم الحج فقام الأقرع بن حابس فقال : أفي كل عام يا رسول الله؟ فقال : لو قلتها لوجبت ، ولو وجبت لم تعملوا بها ولم تستطيعوا أن تعملوا بها ، الحج مرة فمن زاد فهو تطوع
“‘O People! Allah has made Hajj incumbent upon you.’ Hadrat Aqra’ ibn Habis stood up and inquired, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Is it incumbent each year?’ The Messenger of Allah said, ‘If I say ‘yes’ then it would be made obligatory and incumbent upon you each year, and if it was to be made incumbent each year you would not be able to fulfill this religious duty. Thus, Hajj is only once in the lifetime and those who exceed this (do more than once) then the (extra) is nafl (optional).’” [Mishkat, Kitab al-Manasik, Page 221]


From this we understand that the Holy Prophet has full power, control and authority on Shari’ah and Sacred Islamic Laws. If the Messenger of Allah desired, he could have made Hajj obligatory and incumbent each year. For a detailed treatise on this topic please read: Muniyyat al-Labib Anna al-Tashri’a biyad al-Habib (1311AH ) by Imam Ahmed Rida Khan.

Hadrat ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhuma reported that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam said,

من أراد الحج فليعجل
“He who intends to perform hajj should hasten to do so.” [Sunan Darimi, Vol. 2, Page 27]


Hadrat ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam said,

تابعوا بين الحج والعمرة فإنهما ينفيان الفقر والذنوب كما ينفي ‏ ‏الكير ‏ ‏خبث الحديد ‏ ‏والذهب والفضة وليس للحجة المبرورة ثواب إلا الجنة
“Make the Hajj and the Umrah follow each other closely, (wear the Ihram for Qiran, in which the intention of Hajj and ‘Umrah is done or perform both the Hajj and ‘Umrah consecutively) for they remove poverty and sins as a furnace removes impurities from iron, gold and silver; and Hajj which is accepted, its reward is Paradise.” [Sunan Tirmidhi, Abwab al-Hajj, Vol. 1, Page 167]


Hadrat Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam said,

من خرج حاجا أو معتمرا أو غازيا ثم مات في طريقه كتب الله له أجر الغازي والحاج والمعتمر
“Anyone who went out (of his house) with the intention of performing Hajj, ‘Umrah or fighting in the Path of Allah, and then passed away as he was on his way, then Allah the Most Exalted shall forever write for him the reward of a Haji, one who performs ‘Umrah and a mujahid.” [Mishkaat, Kitab al-Manasik, Page 223]


Hadrat ibn ‘Abbas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhuma reported that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam has stated,

أن العمرة في رمضان تعدل حجة
“Performing ‘Umrah in the month of Ramadan equals (in reward) a Hajj.” [Baihaqi, Bab al-Umrah fi Ramadan, Vol. 4, Page 565]

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/316367_10150337849930334_672380333_8741686_348599398_n.jpg

Hadrat Abu Razin al-‘Uqayli Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu came to the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam and asked,

يا رسول الله إن أبي شيخ كبير لا يستطيع الحج والعمرة ولا الظعن قال : حج عن أبيك واعتمر
“My father is very old, he cannot perform Hajj and Umrah himself; nor can he ride on any conveyance. He said, “Perform Hajj and Umrah on behalf of your father.” [Sunan Abi Dawood, Baab al-Rajul Yahujju 'an Ghayrih, Vol. 1, Page 252]


Hadrat ibn ‘Abbas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhuma reported that: A man came to the Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam and said,

إن أختي نذرت أن تحج وأنها ماتت . فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : لو كان عليها دين أكنت قاضيه؟ قال: نعم، قال : فاقض دين الله فهو أحق بالقضاء
“My sister vowed to perform the Hajj, but she died (before fulfilling it).” The Holy Prophet said, “Would you not have paid her debts if she had any?” The man said, “Yes.” So, the Holy Prophet said, “So pay Allah's Rights, as He is more entitled that His rights be fulfilled.” [Sahih Bukhari, Kitab an-Nudhur, Vol. 2, Page 991]


Hadrat ibn ‘Abbas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhuma reported that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam said,

لا تسافرن امرأة إلا ومعها محرم
“Never should any woman travel (even if it be for Hajj) without her mahram (to which she cannot marry i.e. marrying to him is Haram) [Sahih Muslim, Baab Safar al-Mar'ah Ma'a Mahram, Vol. 1, Page 434]


Hadrat ‘Ali Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam said,

‏من ملك ‏ ‏زادا ‏ ‏وراحلة تبلغه إلى بيت الله ولم يحج فلا عليه أن يموت يهوديا أو نصرانيا وذلك أن الله يقول في كتابه: ‏‏ولله على الناس حج ‏ ‏البيت ‏ ‏من استطاع إليه سبيلا
“If anyone possesses enough provision and an animal to mount on (or any other conveyance) to take him to the House of Allah and (despite this) does not perform the pilgrimage, there is no difference whether he dies as a Jew or a Christian. This is because Allah the Most Exalted has stated, ‘Pilgrimage to the House is a duty men owe to Allah, those who can afford the journey’.” [Sunan Tirmidhi, Baab Ma Ja'a minat Taghleedh, Vol. 1, Page 167]

IMPORTANT NOTES:

1. To perform Hajj to “show off” to others or pretence or to perform Hajj from wealth which is Haram (such that it was gained from Haram means) then it is Haram to go to perform Hajj. [al-Durr al-Mukhtar, Radd al-Muhtar, Bahar-e-Shari’at Vol. 6 Page 719]

2. If Makkah al-Mukarramah is situated at a distance of three days or more (normal walking distance which equals to approximately 57 ½ miles or 92 kilometres) from the place of residence of a woman who intends to perform Hajj then she must, (irrespective of being young or old,) accompany her husband or a “Mahram” (those relatives to whom it is Haram for the woman to marry; whether this prohitibiton is because of a blood-relation such as the son, brother, father or because of a foster relation or the in-laws, such as the father-in-law, or the son of his husband from his previous wife) [Bahar-e-Shari’at]

3. The husband or the “mahram” with whom the woman can go to perform Hajj has to be sane, mature and not a fasiq (transgressor). One cannot perform Hajj with an insane, immature or a fasiq. [‘Alamgiri, al-Durr al-Mukhtar, Bahar-e-Shari’at]

4. It is haram for a woman to go to perform Hajj without her husband or any “mahram”. If she does so, then she has accomplished the religious duty. However, a sin shall be written on every step she takes (to and fro). [Fatawa-e-Razawiyyah, Vol. 4, Page 691]

5. Some women go to perform Hajj with her spiritual guide (Peer) or a very old man (who are ghayr mahram for them). This is also unlawful and Haraam.

6. If there is no husband or “mahram” to accompany the woman, then it is not wajib for the woman to perform nikah (in order for a valid person such as her husband to accompany her to go to perform Hajj). [Bahar-e-Shari’at]

7. If one has an amount of money sufficient for him/her to perform Hajj, but not enough to bring gifts and souvenirs for friends and relatives on return, then to perform Hajj is still incumbent (obligatory) upon him/her. Not to perform Hajj because of the insufficient amount of money to bring gifts and toys is Haram. [Bahar-e-Shari’at]

8. The table below shows the rulings of each aspect of Hajj for a Mutammati’; which is Fard (obligatory), Wajib (necessary), Sunnah, or Nafl (optional):

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/312530_10150340089200334_672380333_8754861_940162528_n.jpg


9. The 5 days of Hajj (in brief):

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/312767_10150340089395334_672380333_8754863_1089681213_n.jpg


10. A woman who is in her menstrual cycle (haiz) cannot perform Tawaf-e-Ziyarat (Tawaf-e-Ifada) on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah. If she cannot perform this Tawaf on this date due to her menstrual cycle, then if she becomes ‘clean’ after this date until the sunset on the 12th of Dhul Hijjah, it is obligatory on her to perform this tawaf. If even after these dates, the woman has not become ‘clean’, but has become clean after these dates, then it is obligatory for her to perform this Tawaf.

a. If a woman who is in her periods (menstrual cycle) can take tablets to terminate the menstrual cycle, then she can do so. However, doing this shall cause harm to one’s health. Therefore, it is advisable not to do it. [Fatawa-e-Markazi Dar-ul-Ifta – 11th Year – 2006 - Page 35]

b. If a female can change her return date back to her country, in order for her to become ‘clean’ and thereafter perform this Fard Tawaf, then she should do so. Otherwise, if she returned back to her place of residence, not having performed this Fard Tawaf, then her Hajj is incomplete. She shall have to retrun in the “Months of Hajj” which are Shawwal, Dhul Qa’dah, first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah; and then perform the Fard Tawaf (Tawaf-e-Ziyarat). She shall also have to sacrifice an animal in the haram boundaries, as atonement for reutnring to her destination without having performed this obligatory Tawaf. [Fatawa-e-Faqih-e-Millat – Vol. 1 Page 349]


https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/s720x720/299268_10150337848710334_672380333_8741675_964176357_n.jpg

11. Those who have been blessed with performing Hajj and visiting the August Presence of the Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam should (on return to their places) draw people closer towards religion; by giving them gifts which helps them to do so. Such gifts include giving books of the Ahl al-sunnah wa al-Jama’ah, Islamic lectures, Islamic CDs and so on. Unfortunately, however, most Hajis bring with them radios for their friends and relatives by which they, most of the time, listen to music; gaining sins upon sins upon sins, not only in their Book of Deeds but also in the Book of Deeds of the one who initially gave it to them. This same ruling applies to those people who bring gold rings and/or chains or any other jewellery item for men to wear. This is because it is unlawful (Haram) for males to wear any kind of jewellery (whether it comes from the two Holy Sanctuaries or any other place) made out of any metal whatsoever, except for one silver ring which has to have one stone, and which does not weight more than 4.23 grams.

Allah Most High states:

وتعاونوا على البر والتقوى ولا تعاونوا على الاثم والعدوان
“and help one another in (matters of) virtue and piety and do not mutually cooperatw in what is sinful and wicked…” [Surah al-Ma’idah, Verse 2]


12. A person who performed Hajj with pure Halal money (which was gained from Halal means), had a sincere intention (to perform Hajj solely for seeking the pleasure of Allah and His Beloved Messenger), did not fight, quarrel or argue in it, protected himself from all disobedincies and sins, and thereafter passed away (after having performed Hajj), but did not have the time to fulfil all of the Rights of Allah (Huququllah) or the Rights of His slaves (Huququl Ibaad), then in the situation of his/her Hajj being accepted, there is a high hope that Allah Ta’ala forgives all of His rights and through His mercy He shall forgive the rights of His slaves. There is also hope that on the Day of Resurrection Allah shall please all those whose right was upon the shoulders of this person, and protect this slave of His from contention as regards to the rights being unfulfilled. [A’jab al-Imdad fi mukaffirati Huquq al-‘Ibad – Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Rehmatullahi ‘Alayh – Fatawa-e-Razawiyyah – Vol. 24, Pages  459-476]

13. If a person stayed alive after having performed Hajj, and then as much as his/her capability, tried to fulfil the rights of Allah and the rights of His slaves; such as paying the Zakat which he/she did not pay for years that preceded; or performed the Qaza of prayers that were missed; or the fasts that had not been kept; or fulfilled the rights of those who owned that right by repaying the owner of the right or his/her next of kin, asked for forgiveness from the person to whom he/she had caused problems or had troubled; those who passed away before their rights were fulfilled, then he/she gave charity on behalf of them ; if anything remained unfulfilled from the rights of Allah and His slaves, then he did a wasiyyah (leave by will) near the time of death that the rights be fulfilled by taking that share from his/her own wealth and then giving it to the owner of the right. Conclusively, he/she tried their best to fulfil all the rights that were left unaccomplished, then there is even a greater hope for the forgiveness of such people. [A’jab al-Imdad]


https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/s720x720/309067_10150337847565334_672380333_8741668_1464651546_n.jpg

14. Yes however, if one was neglectful in fulfilling these rights after having performed Hajj, and hence, he/she did not fulfill these rights then all these sins shall start to be written in his/her Book of Deeds.  This is because prior to performing Hajj, the rights of Allah and His slaves still remained on his/her responsibility to fulfill, but they delayed in fulfilling these rights and on top of this, they neglected these rights even after performing Hajj. Thus, the Hajj performed will not be sufficient to eliminate these rights that have remained on his/her responsibility. This is because, yes, Hajj does remove the sins of not performing salaah and keeping fasts in their prescribed times. However, Hajj deos not eliminate the obligation of performing the qaza of the prayers that have been missed; or keeping fasts that have been missed.

15. A sign of a person’s Hajj being accepted is that the Haji becomes more ‘religious’ after Hajj than was before. [A’jab al-Imdad]

16. Nowadays, many people have become heedless of fulfilling the rights of Allah and His slaves for many years; such as they have not performed the Qaza for their missed prayers; or not kept the fasts that they had broken or not kept; or not payed the Zakat for their previous years. This is why we see them killing one another; seizing each others property; stealing other peoples wealth; causing problems and giving distress to others. it is great misunderstanding for such people to think that after having performed Hajj all of their sins have been eradicated. If the Rights of Allah and the Rights of His slaves have been left unfulfilled, even after having performed Hajj, then they have to be accomplished as soon as possible.

We ask Almighty Allah that He gives us the tawfiq and guidance to fulfil His rights and those of His slaves... Aameen!!

اسلامی سال کا بارہواں مہینہ ۔۔۔ ذو الحجہ شریف

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/295863_10150337842045334_672380333_8741621_2050387006_n.jpg
اسلامی سال کا بارہواں مہینہ ذوالحجہ ہے اس کی وجہ تسمیہ ظاہر ہے کہ اس ماہ میں لوگ حج کرتے ہیں اور اس کے پہلے عشرے کا نام قرآن مجید میں ''ایام معلومات'' رکھا گیا ہے یہ دن اللہ کریم کو بہت پیارے ہیں۔ اس کی پہلی تاریخ کو سیدہ عالم حضرت خاتونِ جنت فاطمہ زہراء رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہا کا نکاح سیدنا حضرت شیر خدا علی مرتضیٰ کرم اللہ تعالیٰ وجہہ الکریم کے ساتھ ہوا۔

اس ماہ کی آٹھویں تاریخ کو یومِ ترویہ کہتے ہیں ۔ کیوں کہ حجاج اس دن اپنے اونٹوں کو پانی سے خوب سیراب کرتے تھے۔ تاکہ عرفہ کے روز تک ان کو پیاس نہ لگے ۔ یا اس لئے اس کو یوم ترویہ (سوچ بچار) کہتے ہیں کہ سیدنا حضرت ابراہیم خلیل اللہ علیٰ نبینا و علیہ الصلوٰۃ والسلام نے آٹھویں ذی الحجہ کو رات کے وقت خواب میں دیکھا تھا کہ کوئی کہنے والا کہہ رہا ہے کہ اللہ تعالیٰ تجھے حکم دیتا ہے کہ اپنے بیٹے کو ذبح کر۔ تو آپ نے صبح کے وقت سوچا اور غور کیا کہ آیا یہ اللہ تعالیٰ کی طرف سے ہے یا شیطان کی طرف سے ۔ اس لئے اس کو یومِ ترویہ کہتے ہیں ۔

اور اس کی نویں تاریخ کو عرفہ کہتے ہیں۔ کیوں کہ سیدنا حضرت ابراہیم علیہ الصلوٰۃ والسلام نے جب نویں تاریخ کی رات کو وہی خواب دیکھا تو پہچان لیا کہ یہ خواب اللہ تعالیٰ کی طرف سے ہے ۔ اسی دن حج کا فریضہ سر انجام دیا جاتا ہے ۔

دسویں تاریخ کو یوم نحر کہتے ہیں ۔ کیوں کہ اسی روز سیدنا حضرت اسماعیل علیہ الصلوٰۃ والسلام کی قربانی کی صورت پیدا ہوئی ۔ اور اسی دن عام مسلمان قربانیاں ادا کرتے ہیں۔

اس ماہ کی گیارہ تاریخ کو " یوم القر" اوربارہویں، تیرہویں کو " یوم النفر" کہتے ہیں اور اس ماہ کی بارہویں تاریخ کو حضور سراپا نور شافع یوم النشور صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے سیدنا حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالی عنہ سے بھائی چارہ قائم فرمایا تھا۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٥٩۔٤٦٠)


ماہِ ذو الحجہ کی فضیلت:

ذوالحجہ کا مہینہ چار برکت اور حرمت والے مہینوں میں سے ایک ہے ۔ اس مبارک مہینہ میں کثرتِ نوافل، روزے، تلاوت قرآن، تسبیح و تہلیل، تکبیر و تقدیس اور صدقات و خیرات وغیرہ اعمال کا بہت بڑا ثواب ہے ۔ اور بالخصوص اس کے پہلے دس دنوں کی اتنی فضیلت ہے کہ اللہ تعالیٰ نے اس عشرہ کی دس راتوں کی قسم یاد فرمائی ہے ۔ چنانچہ ارشاد باری تعالیٰ ہے:

وَالْفَجْرِ o وَلَیَالٍ عَشْرٍ o وَالشَّفْعِ وَالْوَتْرِ o وَالَّیْلِ اِذَا یَسْرِ o
قسم ہے مجھے فجر کی عیدِ قربان کی اور دس راتوں کی جو ذوالحجہ کی پہلی دس راتیں ہیں ۔ اور قسم ہے جفت اور طاق کی جو رمضان مبارک کی آخری راتیں ہیں، اور قسم ہے اپنے حبیب صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے معراج کی رات کی۔

اس قسم سے پتہ چلتا ہے کہ عشرہ ذی الحجہ کی بہت بڑی فضیلت ہے۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٦٣)

ماہِ ذو الحجہ کی فضیلت احادیث مبارکہ کی روشنی میں

حدیث ١:

عن أم سلمة - رضي الله عنها - قالت : قال رسول الله - صلى الله عليه وسلم - : إذا دخل العشر ، وأراد بعضكم أن يضحي فلا يمس من شعره وبشره شيئا ، وفي رواية : فلا يأخذن شعرا ، ولا يقلمن ظفرا ، وفي رواية : من رأى هلال ذي الحجة وأراد أن يضحي ، فلا يأخذ من شعره ولا من ظفاره . رواه مسلم
سیدہ حضرت ام سلمہ رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہا فرماتی ہیں کہ رسول خدا حبیب ِ کبریا صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا : کہ جس وقت عشرہ ذی الحجہ داخل ہوجائے اور تمہارا کوئی آدمی قربانی کرنے کا ارادہ رکھتا ہو تو چاہئے کہ بال اور جسم سے کسی چیز کو مس نہ کرے۔ اور ایک روایت میں ہے کہ فرمایا کہ بال نہ کترائے اور نہ ناخن اتروائے۔ اور ایک روایت میں ہے کہ جو شخص ذی الحجہ کا چاند دیکھ لے اور قربانی کا ارادہ ہو تو نہ بال منڈائے اور نہ ناخن ترشوائے۔ (مشکوٰۃ ص ١٢٧)

حدیث ٢:

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ما من أيام العمل الصالح فيهن أحب إلى الله من هذه الأيام العشر , قالوا : يا رسول الله ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله ؟ قال : ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله إلا رجل خرج بنفسه وماله فلم يرجع من ذلك بشيء. [ رواه البخاري ]
سیدنا حضرت ابن عباس رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہما نے فرمایا کہ رسولِ خدا صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا کہ کوئی دن ایسا نہیں ہے کہ نیک عمل اس میں ان ایام عشرہ سے اللہ تعالیٰ کے نزدیک زیادہ محبوب ہو۔ صحابۂ کرام رضی اللہ عنہم نے عرض کیا یا رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم جہاد فی سبیل اللہ بھی نہیں ؟ فرمایا : جہاد فی سبیل اللہ بھی نہیں ! مگر وہ مرد جو اپنی جان اور مال لے کر نکلا اور ان میں سے کسی چیز کے ساتھ واپس نہیں آیا (یعنی شہادت)۔ (مشکوٰۃ ص ١٢٨)

حدیث ٣:

عن ابي هريرة ان النبي (صلوات ربي وسلامه عليه) قال ما من ايام احب الى الله ان يتعبد له فيها من عشر ذي الحجة يعدل صيام كل يوم منها بصيام سنة وقيام لَيلَة فيھِن كقيام سنة
سیدنا حضرت ابو ہریرہ رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے روایت کرتے ہیں کہ آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے ارشاد فرمایا کہ کوئی دن زیادہ محبوب نہیں اللہ تعالیٰ کی طرف کہ ان میں عبادت کی جائے ذی الحجہ کے ان دس دنوں سے۔ ان دنوں میں ایک دن کا روزہ سال کے روزوں کے برابر ہے اور اس کی ایک رات کا قیام سال کے قیام کے برابر ہے۔ (غنیۃ الطالبین ص ٤١٧ ، مشکوٰۃ ص  ١٢٨ ، فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٦٤ تا ٤٦٦)

عشرہ ذی الحجہ کی فضیلت:

جو شخص ان دس ایام کی عزت کرتا ہے اللہ تعالیٰ یہ دس چیزیں اس کو مرحمت فرماکر اس کی عزت افزائی کرتا ہے (١) عمر میں برکت (٢) مال میں افزونی (٣) اہل و عیال کی حفاظت (٤) گناہوں کا کفارہ (٥) نیکیوں میں اضافہ (٦) نزع میں آسانی (٧) ظلمت میں روشنی (٨) میزان میں سنگینی یعنی وزنی بنانا (٩) دوزخ کے طبقات سے نجات (١٠) جنت کے درجات پر عروج۔

جس نے اس عشرہ میں کسی مسکین کو کچھ خیرات دی اس نے گویا اپنے پیغمبروں علیہم السلام کی سنت پر صدقہ دیا۔ جس نے ان دنوں میں کسی کی عیادت کی اس نے اولیاء اللہ اور ابدال کی عیادت کی ، جو کسی کے جنازے کے ساتھ گیا اس نے گویا شہیدوں کے جنازے میں شرکت کی، جس نے کسی مومن کو اس عشرہ میں لباس پہنایا، اللہ تعالیٰ اس کو اپنی طرف سے خلعت پہنائے گا جو کسی یتیم پر مہربانی کرے گا ، اللہ تعالیٰ اس پر عرش کے نیچے مہربانی فرمائے گا، جو شخص کسی عالم کی مجلس میں اس عشرہ میں شریک ہوا وہ گویا انبیا اور مرسلین علیہم السلام کی مجلس میں شریک ہوا۔ (غنیہ الطالبین صفحہ ٤١٩)

ذوالحجہ کے پہلے نو دنوں کے روزے:

ذوالحجہ مبارک کے پہلے عشرہ کے پہلے نو دن روزہ رکھنا بڑا ثواب ہے ۔ ام المؤمنین سیدہ حضرت حفصہ رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہا فرماتی ہیں:

أربع لم يكن يدعهن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : صيامَ عاشورا , والعَشـْرَ , والعَشـْرَ , وثلاثة ً أيام من كل شهر , والركعتين قبل الفجر
چار چیزوں کو نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نہیں چھوڑا کرتے تھے ۔ عاشورہ کا روزہ اور ذولحجہ کے دس دن یعنی پہلے نو دن کا روزہ اور ہر ماہ کے تین دن کا روزہ اور نماز فجر سے قبل دورکعتیں۔ ( مشکوٰۃ ص ١٨٠ ، فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٦٦)

ماہِ ذی الحجہ کے نفل:

٭ حدیث شریف میں ہے کہ جو شخص اول رات ذوالحجہ میں چار رکعت نفل پڑھے کہ ہر کعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد قُلْ ہُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَدٌ پچیس مرتبہ پڑھے تو اللہ تعالیٰ اس کے لئے بیشمار ثواب لکھتا ہے۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٨٧)

٭ حضور رحمۃ للعالمین شفیع المذنبین صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا جو شخص دسویں ذی الحجہ تک ہر رات وتروں کے بعد دو رکعت نفل پڑھے کہ ہر رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد سورہ کوثر اور سورہ اخلاص تین تین دفعہ پڑھے تو اس کو اللہ تعالیٰ مقام اعلیٰ علیین میں داخل فرمائے گا اور اس کے ہر بال کے بدلہ میں ہزار نیکیاں لکھے گا اور اس کو ہزار دینار صدقہ دینے کا ثواب ملے گا۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٨٧)

٭ اگر کوئی اس مہینہ کی کسی رات کی پچھلی تہائی رات میں چار رکعات نفل پڑھے جس کی ہر رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد آیۃ الکرسی تین بار اور قُلْ ہُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَدٌ تین بار اور قُلْ اَعُوْذُ بِرَبِّ الْـفَلَـقِ اور قُلْ اَعُوْذُ بِرَ بِّ النَّاسِ ایک ایک مرتبہ پڑھے اور نماز سے فارغ ہونے کے بعد اپنے دونوں ہاتھ اٹھا کر یہ دعا پڑھے

سبحان ذي العزة والجبروت سبحان ذي القدرة والملكوت سبحان ذي الحي الذي لا يموت لا اله إلا الله يحي و يميت وهو حي لا يموت سبحان الله رب العباد والبلاد والحمد لله حمدا كثيرا طيبا مباركا فيه على كل حال والله اكبر كبيرا كبرياء ربنا وجلاله وقدرته بكل مكان

پھر جو چاہے مانگے تو اس کے لئے ایسا اجر ہے جیسے کسی نے بیت اللہ شریف کا حج کیا ہو ۔ اور حضور سراپا نور شافع یوم النشور صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے روضہ اطہر کی زیارت کی ہوگی (غنیہ الطالبین صفحہ ٤١٧)

٭ سرکار صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا کہ جو کوئی عرفہ کی رات یعنی نویں کی رات کو سو١٠٠ رکعات نفل ادا کرلے اور ہر رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد ایک بار یا تین بارقُلْ ہُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَدٌ پڑھے تو اللہ تعالیٰ اس کے تمام گناہوں کو بخش دے گا اور اس کے لئے جنت میں یا قوت کا سرخ مکان بنایا جائے گا۔

دوسری روایت میں ہے کہ عرفہ کی رات میں دو رکعات نفل پڑھے۔ پہلی رکعات میں الحمد شریف کے بعد ١٠٠ مرتبہ آیت الکرسی پڑھے اور دوسری رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد قُلْ ہُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَدٌ ١٠٠ مرتبہ پڑھے تو اللہ کریم قیامت کے دن اس نماز کی برکت سے اس کو بمعہ اس کے ستر٧٠ آدمی بخشے گا۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٨٩)

٭ جو کوئی نحر کی رات یعنی دسویں ذوالحجہ کو جس کی صبح عید ہوتی ہے بارہ رکعات نفل پڑھے اور ہر رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد قُلْ ہُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَدٌ پندرہ دفعہ پڑھے تو اس نے ستر سال کی عبادت کا ثواب حاصل کیا اور تمام گناہوں سے پاک ہوگیا۔ اسی رات کی ایک نماز یہ بھی ہے کہ ہر رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد ایک دفعہ قُلْ ہُوَ اللّٰہُ اَحَدٌ اور ایک دفعہ قُلْ اَعُوْذُ بِرَبِّ الْـفَلَـقِ اورایک دفعہ قُلْ اَعُوْذُ بِرَ بِّ النَّاسِ پڑھے اور سلام کے بعد ستر٧٠ دفعہ سُبحَانَ اللّٰہِ اور ستر٧٠ دفعہ درود شریف پڑھے تو اس کے تمام گناہ بخشے جائیں گے۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٨٩)

٭ دسویں تاریخ کو نماز قربانی کے بعد گھر آکر چار رکعات نفل جو مسلمان ادا کرے کہ پہلی رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد سَبِّحِ اسْمَ رَبِّکَ الْاَعْلٰی ایک بار اور دوسری رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد وَالشَّمْسِ ایک بار اور تیسری رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد وَالَّیْلِ ایک بار پڑھے اور چوتھی رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد وَالضُّحٰی ایک دفعہ پڑھے ۔ پس پایا اس نے ثواب آسمانی کتابوں کو پڑھنے کا ۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٨٩)

٭ جو شخص قربانی کے بعد دو رکعت نفل پڑھے اور ہر رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد وَالشَّمْسِ پانچ بار پڑھے تو وہ شخص حاجیوں کے ثواب میں شامل ہوا اور اس کی قربانی قبول ہوئی۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٩٠)

٭ بارگاہِ رسالت صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم میں صحابہ کرام رضی اللہ عنہم نے عرض کیا کہ یا رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم ! اگر کوئی فقیر ہو اور قربانی کی طاقت نہ رکھتا ہو تو کیا کرے؟ حبیب خدا صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا کہ وہ نمازِ عید کے بعد گھر میں دورکعات نفل پڑھے ۔ ہر رکعت میں الحمد شریف کے بعد سورئہ الکوثر تین مرتبہ پڑھے تو اللہ جل شانہ، اس کو اونٹ کی قربانی کا ثواب عطا فرمائے گا۔ (فضائل الایام والشہور صفحہ ٤٩٠ بحوالہ راحت القلوب)

Each and every Prophet and Messenger of Allah was blessed with a perfect disposition. They were handsome and their lineage noble. Their character was good as was their behavior. This is because they all possess the attributes of perfection. They guided to the completed the code of human spiritual behavior which was to be completed by Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him and practiced virtuous deeds on account of their rank being of the most noble and their degree being of the highest.

The Seal of the Prophethood – Sayyiduna wa Mawlana
MuHammad ar-RasoolAllah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam


Allah tells us that He preferred some of the Prophets and Messengers over others with His words,

تلك الرسل فضلنا بعضهم على بعض منهم من كلم اللـه ورفع بعضهم درجات وآتينا عيسى ابن مريم البينات وأيدناه بروح القدس
"These are the Noble Messengers, to whom We gave excellence over each other; of them are some with whom Allah spoke, and some whom He exalted high above all others; and We gave Eisa (Jesus), the son of Maryam, clear signs and We aided him with the Holy Spirit" [Surah al-Baqarah : 253]


He also tells us,

ولقد اخترناهم على علم على العالمين
"And We knowingly chose them, among all others of their time" [Surah al-Dukhan : 32]


Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him said,

إن أول زمرة يدخلون الجنة على صورة القمر ليلة البدر... على خلق رجل واحد ، على صورة ، أبيهم آدم ، طوله ستون ذراعاً في السماء
"The first group to enter the Garden of Paradise will be like the full moon… every man will be in the height of their father Adam who was sixty cubits (90 feet) tall." [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Page 93 – Sahih Muslim, Volume 4, Page 2179]


Sayyiduna Moosa Kalimullah (Moses) Alaihis Salam - Palestine


The description of several of the prophets has been made known to us by Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him who tells us,

رأيت موسى فإذا هو رجل ضرب ، رجل ، أقنى كأنه من رجال شنوءة و رأيت عيسى فإذا هو رجل ربعة ، كثير خيلان الوجه ، أحمر كأنما خرج من ديماس
"I saw Moosa (Moses), he was tall with curly hair. He resembled the men of Shanu'a. I saw Eisa (Jesus), he was of medium height with a reddish face just as if he had come out after having taken a hot bath."


He further described him as being slender, like a sword. He gave additional information about Moosa saying,

مبطن مثل السيف
"He is like the best men you have ever seen with a dark complexion."


Of himself he said,

و أنا أشبه ولد إبراهيم به
"Among the descendants of Ibrahim, I am the one who most resembles him." [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Page 122 – Sahih Muslim, Volume 1, Page 153]


Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu tells us,

ما بعث الله تعالى من بعد لوط نبياً إلا في ذروة من قومه
"After Prophet Lot, Allah did not send a prophet who was not from the noblest class of his people." In addition to this is that they were among the wealthy and powerful. [Mustadrak, Volume 2, Page 561]


Sayyiduna Anas ibn Maalik Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu tells us that

ما بعث الله نبياً حسن الوجه ، حسن الصوت ، و كان نبيكم أحسنهم وجهاً ، و أحسنهم صوتاً
Allah did not send a prophet without making his face and voice beautiful, and that Prophet Muhammad, may Allah praise and venerate him and grant him peace, had the most handsome face of all of them and also the best voice. [Shama'il al-Tirmidhi, Page 254]


During the cross-examination of Sayyiduna Abu Sufyan Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anho by Heraclius, Emperor of Rome, Heraclius said,

و سألتك عن نسبه ، فذكرت أنه فيكم ذو نسب ، و كذلك الرسل تبعث في أنساب قومها
"I questioned you about his lineage and you said that he was of good lineage among you, and that is how all the Messengers have bee sent, from the noble families of their people." [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Page 125]


Sayyiduna Yusha' bin Noon Alaihis Salam - Iraq

Prophets and Messengers preferred by Almighty Allah

There are many references to the Prophets and Messengers who were preferred by Allah mentioned in the Holy Qur'an, some of which are mentioned below:

Of Prophet Ayyub Alaihis Salam, Allah says,

إنا وجدناه صابرا نعم العبد إنه أواب
"We indeed found him patiently enduring; what an excellent bondman! He is indeed most inclined." [Surah al-Saad : 44]


Of Prophet Yahya Alaihis Salam, Allah says,

يا يحيى خذ الكتاب بقوة وآتيناه الحكم صبيا۔ وحنانا من لدنا وزكاة وكان تقيا۔ وبرا بوالديه ولم يكن جبارا عصيا۔ وسلام عليه يوم ولد ويوم يموت ويوم يبعث حيا
"O Yahya - hold the Book firmly"; and We gave him Prophethood in his infancy. And compassion from Ourselves, and chastity; and he was extremely pious. And was good to his parents and not forceful, nor disobedient. And peace is upon him the day he was born, and the day he will taste death, and the day he will be raised alive." [Surah al-Maryam : 12-15]


Sayyiduna Zakariya Alaihis Salam - Alleppo, Syria


He also tells us of the time Prophet Zakariyah Alaihis Salam was given the good news of a son,

أن اللـه يبشرك بيحيى مصدقا بكلمة من اللـه وسيدا وحصورا ونبيا من الصالحين
"Indeed Allah gives you glad tidings of Yahya (John), who will confirm a Word (or sign) from Allah, - a leader, always refraining from women, a Prophet from one of Our devoted ones." [Surah Aal-e-Imran : 39]


He tells us,

إن اللـه اصطفى آدم ونوحا وآل إبراهيم وآل عمران على العالمين
"Indeed Allah chose Adam, and Nooh, and the Family of Ibrahim, and the Family of Imran over the creation." [Surah Aal-e-Imran : 33]


Of Prophet Nuh He says,

إنه كان عبدا شكورا
"He was indeed a grateful bondman." [Surah al-Isra : 3]


Sayyiduna Jarjees Alaihis Salam - Mousul, Iraq


Of Prophet Eisa Alaihis Salam He says,

إذ قالت الملائكة يا مريم إن اللـه يبشرك بكلمة منه اسمه المسيح عيسى ابن مريم وجيها في الدنيا والآخرة ومن المقربين
"And remember when the angels said, “O Maryam! Allah gives you glad tidings of a Word from Him, whose name is the Messiah, Eisa the son of Maryam - he will be honourable in this world and in the Hereafter, and among the close ones (to Allah)." [Surah Aal-e-Imran : 45]


Allah quotes Prophet Eisa Alaihis Salam who said,

إني عبد اللـه آتاني الكتاب وجعلني نبيا۔ وجعلني مباركا أين ما كنت وأوصاني بالصلاة والزكاة ما دمت حيا
"I am Allah’s bondman; He has given me the Book and made me a Herald of the Hidden (a Prophet). And He has made me blessed wherever I be; and ordained upon me prayer and charity, as long as I live." [Suran al-Maryam : 30-31]


Sayyiduna YaHya Alaihis Salam - Damascus, Syria


and Almighty Allah warns,

يا أيها الذين آمنوا لا تكونوا كالذين آذوا موسى
"O People who Believe! Do not be like the people who troubled Moosa" [Surah al-Ahzab : 69]


Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him tells us that Prophet Moosa Alaihis Salam was a modest man who covered himself. No part of his body was seen on account of his modesty. [Ash-Shifa, Volume 1, Page 136]

Allah quotes Prophet Moosa Alaihis Salam as saying,

فوهب لي ربي حكما وجعلني من المرسلين
"so my Lord commanded me and appointed me as one of the Noble Messengers." [Surah al-Shu'ara : 21]


Sayyiduna Hud and Sayyiduna Sualeh Alaihim as-Salam - Iraq

Several Prophets mentioned by Almighty Allah

Several of the prophets are mentioned by Almight Allah in the Holy Qur'an as saying to their people,

إني لكم رسول أمين
"I am indeed a trustworthy Noble Messenger of Allah to you." [Surah al-Shu'ara : 107]


In reference to Prophet Ibrahim Alahis Salam, Almighty Allah says,

ووهبنا له إسحاق ويعقوب كلا هدينا ونوحا هدينا من قبل ومن ذريته داوود وسليمان وأيوب ويوسف وموسى وهارون وكذلك نجزي المحسنين۔ وزكريا ويحيى وعيسى وإلياس كل من الصالحين۔ وإسماعيل واليسع ويونس ولوطا وكلا فضلنا على العالمين۔ ومن آبائهم وذرياتهم وإخوانهم واجتبيناهم وهديناهم إلى صراط مستقيم۔ ذلك هدى اللـه يهدي به من يشاء من عباده ولو أشركوا لحبط عنهم ما كانوا يعملون۔ أولئك الذين آتيناهم الكتاب والحكم والنبوة فإن يكفر بها هؤلاء فقد وكلنا بها قوما ليسوا بها بكافرين۔ أولئك الذين هدى اللـه فبهداهم اقتده قل لا أسألكم عليه أجرا إن هو إلا ذكرى للعالمين
"And We bestowed upon him Ishaq (Isaac) and Yaqub (Jacob); We guided all of them; and We guided Nooh before them and of his descendants, Dawud and Sulaiman and Ayyub and Yusuf and Moosa and Haroon; and this is the way We reward the virtuous. And (We guided) Zakaria and Yahya (John) and Eisa and Ilyas; all these are worthy of Our proximity. And Ismael (Ishmael) and Yasa’a (Elisha) and Yunus (Jonah) and Lut (Lot); and to each one during their times, We gave excellence over all others. And some of their ancestors and their descendants and their brothers; and We chose them and guided them to the Straight Path. This is the guidance of Allah, which He may give to whomever He wills among His bondmen; and had they ascribed partners (to Allah), their deeds would have been wasted. These are the ones whom We gave the Book and the wisdom and the Prophethood; so if these people do not believe in it, We have then kept ready for it a nation who do not reject (the truth). These are the ones whom Allah guided, so follow their guidance; say (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “I do not ask from you any fee for the Qur’an; it is nothing but an advice to the entire world." [Surah al-An'aam : 84-90]


Sayyiduna Younus Alaihis Salam - Mousul, Iraq
Prophets and Messengers as Possessors of Admirable Qualities

In the following Qur'anic quotations Allah describes the prophets and messengers as possessors of many fine and admirable qualities; right action, chosen, judgment and prophecy.

Concerning Ishaq Alahis Salam, Allah tells us that the angels said to Ibrahim Alahis Salam,

لا تخف وبشروه بغلام عليم
"“Do not fear!”; and they gave him the glad tidings of a knowledgeable son." [Surah adh-Dhariyat : 28]


And of Ismail Alaihis Salam Allah says,

فبشرناه بغلام حليم
"We therefore gave him the glad tidings of an intelligent son" [Surah as-Saaffat : 101]


Almight Allah says,

ولقد فتنا قبلهم قوم فرعون وجاءهم رسول كريم۔ أن أدوا إلي عباد اللـه إني لكم رسول أمين
"And before them We indeed tried the people of Fir'aun, and an Honourable Noble Messenger came to them. Who said, “Give the bondmen of Allah into my custody; I am indeed a trustworthy Noble Messenger for you.”" [Surah al-Dukhan : 17-18]
Sayyiduna Sheeth Alaihis Salam - Iraq


At the time when Prophet Ibrahim Alaihis Salam was about to fulfill his sacrificial vision of his son, Ismail Alaihis Salam told him,

يا أبت افعل ما تؤمر ستجدني إن شاء اللـه من الصابرين
"O my father! Do what you are commanded! Allah willing, you will soon find me patiently enduring!" [Surah as-Saaffat : 102]


Of Ismail Alaihis Salam, Almighty Allah says,

واذكر في الكتاب إسماعيل إنه كان صادق الوعد وكان رسولا نبيا
"And remember Ismail in the Book; he was indeed true to his promise and was a Noble Messenger, a Prophet." [Surah al-Maryam : 54]


Allah speaks of the devotion of Moosa Alaihis Salam saying,

إنه كان مخلصا وكان رسولا نبيا
"He was indeed a chosen one, and he was a Noble Messenger, a Herald of the Hidden." [Surah al-Maryam : 51]


Also,

قال ستجدني إن شاء اللـه صابرا ولا أعصي لك أمرا
"Said Moosa, 'Allah willing, you will soon find me patient and I will not do anything against your instructions.'" [Surah al-Kahf : 69]


Sayyiduna Ibrahim Khalilullah Alaihis Salam - Palestine


Allah tells us that Sulayman Alaihis Salam was,

نعم العبد إنه أواب
"what an excellent bondman! He is indeed most inclined." [Surah al-Saad : 30]


Allah calls upon us to remember,

واذكر عبادنا إبراهيم وإسحاق ويعقوب أولي الأيدي والأبصار۔ إنا أخلصناهم بخالصة ذكرى الدار۔ وإنهم عندنا لمن المصطفين الأخيار
"And remember Our bondmen Ibrahim, and Ishaq, and Yaqub – the men of power and knowledge. We indeed gave them distinction with a genuine affair – the remembrance of the (everlasting) abode. And in Our sight, they are indeed the chosen ones, the beloved." [Surah al-Saad : 45-47]


Of Prophet Dawud Alaihis Salam, He says,

عبدنا داوود ذا الأيد إنه أواب
"Our bondman Dawud, the one blessed with favours; he is indeed most inclined (towards His Lord)."  [Surah al-Saad : 17]


and,

وشددنا ملكه وآتيناه الحكمة وفصل الخطاب
"And We strengthened his kingdom and gave him wisdom and just speech." [Surah al-Saad : 20]
Sayyiduna Ishaaq Alaihis Salam - Palestine


Of Prophet Yousuf Alaihis Salam, Almighty Allah says,

قال اجعلني على خزائن الأرض إني حفيظ عليم
"Said Yusuf, 'Appoint me over the treasures of the earth; indeed I am a protector, knowledgeable.'" [Surah al-Yousuf : 55]


Allah mentions the saying of Prophet Shu'aib Alaihis Salam,

ستجدني إن شاء اللـه من الصالحين
"Allah willing, you will probably find me of the righteous." [Surah al-Qasas : 27]


And,

ما أريد أن أخالفكم إلى ما أنهاكم عنه إن أريد إلا الإصلاح ما استطعت وما توفيقي إلا باللـه عليه توكلت وإليه أنيب
"I do not wish that I myself act against it; I only intend to make improvements as far possible; my guidance is only from Allah; I rely only upon Him and towards Him only do I incline." [Surah al-Hud : 88]


Sayyiduna Sho'aib Alaihis Salam


Of Prophet Loot Alaihis Salam, Allah tells us,

ولوطا آتيناه حكما وعلما
"And We gave Lut the kingdom and knowledge" [Surah al-Anbiya : 74]


Of Zakariyah and Yahya Alaihim as-Salam, Allah tells us,

إنهم كانوا يسارعون في الخيرات ويدعوننا رغبا ورهبا وكانوا لنا خاشعين
"indeed they used to hasten to perform good deeds, and pray to Us with hope and fear; and used to weep before Us." [Surah al-Anbiya : 90]


Sayyiduna Sufyan Ath-Thawri Alaihir raHma draws our attention to another aspect of the characteristics and qualities found in the prophets, which is their continuous sorrow, this is an indication of their perfection and there are many prophetic quotations that endorse this fact.

Sayyiduna Imran Alaihis Salam - Salalah, Oman


Prophet Muhammad, may Allah praise and venerate him and grant him perfect peace, described for himself,

إنما الكريم ابن ا لكريم ابن الكريم ابن الكريم يوسف بن يعقوب بن إسحاق بن إبراهيم ،نبي ابن نبي ابن نبي ابن نبي
"Verily! without a doubt, I am Generous, son of the Generous, son of the Generous. The noble son of a noble son, of a noble son of a noble man, Yousuf, son of Ya'qub, son of Ishaq, son of Ibrahim the prophet, son of a prophet, son of a prophet, son of a prophet." [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Page 119 – Mustadrak, Volume 2, Page 571 – Ash-Shifa, Volume 1, Page 139]


He also said,

و كذلك الأنبياء تنام أعينهم و لا تنام قلوبهم
"The eyes of the prophets slept, but their hearts did not sleep." [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Page 152]


Prophet Sulayman Alaihis Salam who was given a great kingdom, never raised his eyes to the heavens because he was humble and feared Allah. As for his diet, he would eat coarse bread made from barley but would serve others with fine food. [Az-Zuhud wa Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Page 91]

It was revealed to him, "O leader of worshipers and goal of the abstinent." The story has reached us of how one day when he was riding on the wind with his armies, an elderly woman complained to him, whereupon he commanded the wind to stop so he might attend to her need before he continued on his way. [Ash-Shifa, Volume 1, Page 140]

Sayyiduna Haroon Alaihis Salam - Mount Ohud, Madina Munawwarah


When Prophet Yousuf Alaihis Salam was asked, "Why are you hungry when you are in charge of the treasures of the earth?" He replied, "I am fearful that I might become full and thereby forget those who are hungry." [Ash-Shifa, Volume 1, Page 140]

Abu Hurayrah heard the Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him say,

خفف على داود القرآن ، فكان يأمر بدوابه ، فتسرج ، فيقرأ القرآن قبل أن تسرج ، و لا يأكل إلا من عمل يده
"Recitation was made easy for Dawud. He would order his mount and turn it loose, and would finish his recitation before his mount wandered off." [Ash-Shifa, Volume 1, Page 140]


Prophet Dawud Alaihis Salam ate only from the labor of his own hands and would ask Allah to provide for him from the work of his own labor so that he would not need to take anything from the treasury. Almighty Allah tells us,

ألنا له الحديد ۔ أن اعمل سابغات وقدر في السرد
"and We made iron soft for him. 'Make large coats of armour and keep proper measure while making;'" [Surah Saba : 10-11]


Sayyiduna Dhul-Kifl Alaihis Salam - Iraq


Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him told his Companions,

أحب الصلاة إلى الله صلاة داود ، وأحب الصيام إلى الله صيام داود : كان ينام نصف الليل ، و يقوم ثلثه ، و ينام سدسه ، و يصوم يوماً و يفطر يوماً و كان يلبس الصوف ، و يفترش الشعر ، و يأكل خبز الشعير بالملح والرماد ، و يمزج شرابه بالدموع ، و لم ير ضاحكاً بعد الخطيئة ، ولا شاخصاً ببصره إلى السماء ، حياء من ربه ، و لم يزل باكياً حياته كلها . و قيل : بكى حتى نبت العشب نت دموعه ، و حتى اتخذت الدموع في خذه أخدوداً . و قيل : كان يخرج متنكراً يتعرف سيرته ، فيستمع الثناء عليه ، فيزداد تواضعاً
"The prayer Allah loves most is that of Dawud, and the fast He loves most is that of Dawud. He would sleep for half of the night, stand up for a third and sleep for a sixth. He would fast alternate days. He wore wool and slept on hair. He ate barley bread mixed with salt and ashes. His drink was mixed with tears after his error of inaccurate judgment in which he had passed judgment before hearing from the second party. He was never seen to laugh nor look upwards to the sky because of his shyness before his Lord and he wept continuously until he died. It is said that he wept until plants sprang up from his tears and until the tears formed a crease on his cheeks, and that when he went out he would disguise himself to learn what people thought of his justice, and upon hearing people praise him, he became more humble." [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Page 128 – Sahih Muslim, Volume 2, Page 816 – Kitab az-Zuhud, Page 71 – Ash-Shifa, Volume 1, Page 140]


Eisa Alaihis Salam was asked, "Why don't you ride a donkey?" He replied,

أنا أكرم على الله من أن يشغلني بحمار
"I exalt Allah so much to be occupied with tending to a donkey." [Musannaf Abi Shayba as stated in Manabil as-Safa of Imam Suyooti, Page 87]


His clothing was made from hair and he ate from the trees. He did not have a house and would sleep wherever sleep overtook him. The name he most liked to be called by was "the very poor". [Kitab az-Zuhud]

Sayyiduna Danial Alaihis Salam - Mousul, Iraq


Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him spoke of the trials of previous prophets saying,

لقد كان الأنبياء قبلي يبتلي أحدهم بالفقر و القمل ، و كان ذلك أحب إليهم من العطاء إليكم
"Some of the prophets before me were tested with poverty and lice. They preferred those trials to gifts." [Mustadrak, Volume 4, Page 307]


Mujahid tells us that Prophet Yahya's food was that of herbs and he wept so much on account of his fear of Allah that puffed-up folds formed on his cheeks. To avoid people he would eat in the company of wild animals. [al-Bidaya wa an-Nihaya, Volume 1, Page 149]

Tibri narrated from Wahb Ibn Munabbih that Moosa sought shelter in a hut. He ate and sipped from a stone with a hollow in it. In humility he sipped in a way similar to that of an animal because of the honor Allah had shown him by speaking to him. [Ash-Shifa, Volume 1, Page 141]

Sayyiduna Ayyub Alaihis Salam - Between Babil and Kufa, Iraq


These reports have all been recorded and the perfect attributes of the prophets and messengers together with their good character, handsome features and qualities are well known so we will not linger any more on them. Should you read contrary to these reports in other books, know that the historian or commentator is among the ill-informed.

How Would the Creation Respond?
In honor of the Beloved Prophet of Allah

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/s720x720/251116_10151050307400334_439309044_n.jpg

If the creation of Allah were to become aware of the blasphemous and sacrilegious mockery, insulting and dishonouring the Beloved of Allah [Habībullāh], the Chosen-One [Al-Muştafā], the Owner of the Praised Station [al-Maqām al-Mahmūd], Mercy of the Worlds [Rahmat al-‘Ᾱlamīn], the intercessor of the sinners [Shafi`i al-Mudhnibīn] the possessor of the best character [al-Khuluq al-Adhīm], then no doubt the creation would tremble. If Allah gave them the ability to speak to the Muslims then what would be their response?

The Ka’aba would say, “I was honoured to bow down to him when he arrived into this world. I felt delighted when he came into me and honoured me.”

https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/s720x720/300962_10151050327680334_1341722079_n.jpg

The Mountains would say, “We would be overwhelmed (Mount Uhud) and were moved when the blessed feet were on top of us. [Al-Bukhārī] We were ready to listen to the command of the Beloved. We would have crushed the enemies of our Beloved if he commanded us. But he was sent as a Mercy (Rahmah) and prayed for them.” [Al-Zarqānī]

The Pebbles would say, “We were imprisoned in the hands of the staunch enemy (Abū Jahl) and yet we called out his name (Kalimah), responding to his order.” [Jalāluddīn al-Rūmī]

The Sun would speak out, “O Muslims! I surrendered myself to the order of the Blessed one and I rose again after I had already set.” [Al-Zarqānī and al-Shifā]

The Moon would say, “I would move according to the pointing of my beloved when he was in the cradle. [Imām Baihaqī in his Dalāil] I split my heart into two when the blessed finger pointed towards me.” [Al-Zarqānī]

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/s720x720/391676_10151050308415334_506657082_n.jpg

The Water of the Wells would say, “We were blessed of receiving his saliva. We changed our traits and became sweet only for his sake.” [Al-Zarqānī]

The Fire would speak out, “I cooled down for his beloved companion (‘Ammār Bin Yāsir RadiAllāhu Anhumā) when my beloved told me to do so.” [Shaykh Abdul Haqq al-Dehlavī]

The Camels would say, “We would come to see him. We would prostrate in front of the best of creation, the Mercy of the worlds.” [Imām Ahmad Ibn Hanbal]

The dried palm tree-trunk (Hannānah) would say, “I was honoured being in his blessed company. I cried like a baby in separation of my Beloved. He embraced me and buried me with his blessed hands.” [Al-Bukhārī and Zarqānī]

https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/482929_10151050308700334_2071109927_n.jpg

The Donkey would say, “I (Yafūr) was privileged of carrying the best of creation on my back. After his veiling away from this world, I could not endure his separation so. I fell into a well and gave my life in his love.”

The Eagle would cry out, “I was blessed holding his blessed Sandals to protect him from the poisonous snake.”

The Deer would say, “I listened to the order of my Beloved by coming back after feeding my children. He then freed me. I was so delightful that I went running to the jungle reading his Kalima.” [Imām Ahmad Ibn Hanbal]

The Pigeons would say, “We protected him and his companion (Abū Bakr al-Siddīq RadiAllāhu ‘Anhu) by laying eggs and sitting on our nests on the mouth of the cave (Thour).” [Al-Zarqānī]

The Clouds would say, “We shaded the Sun of the universe. We moved with him wherever he went. When he commanded us, we showered rain on his blessed city.”

https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/s720x720/199931_10151050334485334_549438818_n.jpg

The Burāq would say, “How fortunate I was! I carried the beloved from the Sacred Haram (Makkah) to Masjid al-Aqsa.” [Tafsīr Rūh al-Bayān]

The Spider would say, “I spun a web to close the mouth of the cave to protect him and his companion (Abū Bakr al-Siqqīq RadiAllāhu ‘Anhu) from the enemies.”

The small stones
would respond, “We were honoured to be thrown by his blessed hands. He blinded the enemies in the midst of a battle (Hunayn).” [Mishkāt al-Maşābīh]

The Trees would speak out, “We were honoured of serving the Beloved of Allah by shading him when he blessed us with his presence. We would uproot ourselves and come to him crawling whenever he ordered us to do so.” [Qādī Iyād in his al-Shifā and Surūr al-Mahzūn]

https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/s720x720/10467_10151050312775334_1101555344_n.jpg

The Lion would speak out, “I helped one of the companions of my Beloved and guided him (Safīnah RadiAllāhu ‘Anhu).” [Qādī Iyād in his al-Shifā]

The Wolf would say, “I spoke out eloquently to inform the shepherd of the arrival of the Prophet who possessed the Knowledge of the past and the future (Yukhbirukum Bimā Madā wa mā huwa kāinun).” [Qādī Iyād in his al-Shifā]

The Goats would say, “We were honoured of prostrating to him and kissing his forehead when he was in the lap of Halīma. Others were blessed by being sacrificed at his hands and others miraculously gave milk to serve him and his companions.” [Imām Ahmad Ibn Hanbal and al-Shifā]

They would all then speak out and would say,

“O Muslims! We served him as much as we could. But what have you done to serve him and honour him though you claim to be his followers? Our Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam is being insulted yet you do nothing? We responded to his every call and yet you are disobeying him. O Muslims! Be sure that salvation is only in his obedience.”

Chand Shaq Ho, Payrr Bolein, Jaanwar Sajda Karein;
BaarakAllah! Marja'-e-Aalam Yahi Sarkaar Hay

[Imam Ahmad Ridā Khan Alayhi al-Rahmah]

The Moon splits, the trees speak and animals Prostrate;
Allah Bless! The center of the universe is indeed this Master

All praise is to Allah, the Lord Of The Creation. The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Owner of the Day of Recompense. Who blessed us being the Ummah of His Beloved Rasool Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam. Who sanctified our hearts with the Love and Affection towards His Beloved Rasool Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam. Who blessed us the with the most precious treasure of Iman (Faith)... Countless Salutations, Peace and Blessings be upon the Cream of the Creation... Mercy for all Worlds... Seal of the Prophets Sayyiduna wa Maulana MuHammadur RasoolALLAH Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam, His Blessed Parents, His entire Family, His Progeny, His Companions and all those who Follow Him!!

Dear Brothers and Sisters! Iman is to accept every word of Sayyiduna RasoolAllah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam as absolute and nothing else but truth and to testify whole-heartedly the reality and truth of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam.



One who observes the above would be called a Muslim, that is, if any of his words, actions or conditions does not reject, insult or falsify Almighty Allah and His Rasool SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam. His relationship with Almighty Allah and His Rasool SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam must be above all other relationships. He must love and respect all those who are the beloved of Almighty Allah and His Rasool SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam even though that person may be his enemy. He must disrespect and hate all those who disrespect and hate Almighty Allah and His Rasool SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam even if that person may be his beloved son. Whatever he gives should be for Almighty Allah and whatever he abstains from must be for Almighty Allah. Such a persons Iman is known as "Kaamil" or "Complete".

Sayyiduna RasoolAllah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam states:


من أحب لله وأبغض لله وأعطى لله ومنع لله فقد استكمل الإيمان
"One who loves for Allah, hates anyone because of Allah, spends for Allah and holds back for Allah, then, indeed, he has completed his Iman." [Sunan Abi Dawood, Vol. 2, Page 632, Hadith 4681]


Penalty for Insulting the Beloved Prophet
SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam

This is an enormous subject, but we shall concentrate in what constitutes an insult then the impending penalty.

1. The verdict of infidelity for insulting the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam will depend upon the apparent words and no consideration will be given to the intention and the purpose of the person committing the insult and the circumstances of the time. [Imām Shahāb ud-Dīn Khafājī Hanafī, Nasīm ar-Riyadh, Vol. 4, Page 426]

2. When a person (a Muslim) speaks ill of the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam is any connection, he becomes an infidel. According to some ‘Ulamā, if a man uses an insulting word even for the sacred hair of the Holy Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam he will become an infidel. [Fatāwah Qadī Khan, Vol. 4, Page 882]



3. If a Muslims abuses the Holy Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam or lies about him or picks out faults in him, or robs him of his dignity, he commits the act of infidelity against Allāh Almighty. [Imām Abū Yūsuf, Kitāb al-Khiraj, Page 182]

4. Truly whoever abused the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam or ascribed any fault to him or attributed any defect to his family, religion or his habit, or reproached him, or compared the Holy Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam with any defective thing with the objective of degrading his personality and prestige, he is truly an abusive person and deserves to be executed. We make absolutely no exception to this verdict, whether the insult has been committed intentionally or unintentionally. This has been the verdict of all the ‘Ulamā of the Ummah from the time of the Companions to the present day. [Qadī Iyadh, Ash-Shifa, Vol. 2, Page 214]

5. It is narrated by Imām Abū Hafs al-Kabīr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu that if anybody ascribes a defect even to the sacred hair of the Holy Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam he will become an infidel. Imām Muhammad Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu mentioned in his ‘Mabsūt’ that it is an act of infidelity to abuse the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

6. It is beyond doubt that the whole of the Ummah is unanimous that the one who slanders the Holy Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam or any of the other Prophets, is an infidel, whether he committed this act while considering it legitimate or illegitimate. He is an infidel in the opinion of the Ulema, and whoever doubts his infidelity is also an infidel. [Dhakhairat al-Uqba, Page 240]

7. It is stated in Fatawa Alamgir (also known as Fatawa al-Hindiya) that No ta’wīl will be heard for manifest, unambiguous words. Fatāwah Khulasa, Fusul ‘Imadiya, Jami’ al-Fusulin and Fatāwah Hindiya and others state: If someone calls himself RasûlAllâh or refers to himself as Paighambar in Persian and then says that he meant that he is an ambassador who delivers someone’s message; then he will become a Kâfir. [Fatāwah Hindiya, Vol. 2, Page 263]

8. Imām Qadī ‘Iyadh writes that Imām Ahmad bin Abī Sulaiman, student of Imām Sahnun rahimahumAllah, was asked about a man to whom it was said that “In the name of RasûlAllâh”, he said “May Allah do so-and so with RasûlAllâh” and uttered insolent words. It was said to him, “Oh enemy of God! What do you utter about the Messenger?” He replied using even harsher words and then said, “By saying RasûlAllâh, I meant a scorpion”. Imām Ahmad bin Abī Sulaiman advised the questioner thus, “Bear witness against him so that he may get the punishment of death and that you get the reward. I am with you on this” [meaning, give evidence against him to the Muslim judge and I will also try that we get the judge to issue a verdict of capital punishment and gain the reward of this]. Imām Habīb bin Rabī’ says that this is because no ta’wīl is heard for explicit words. [al-Shifa’ fī Ta’rif Huqūq al-Mustafa, Vol. 2, Page 209]


http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1389.snc4/164121_484767210333_672380333_6555294_6518513_n.jpg

9. Mawlana ‘Alī Qarī writes that is, when that man said that he was referring to a scorpion – he claimed the literal meaning of the word Risalah in that even the scorpion is sent by Allāh to the people – this ta’wīl is rejected according the rules of the Sharī’ā. [Sharh Shifa’ Mullah ‘Alī Qarī ma’a Nasīm al-Riyadh, Vol. 4, Page 343]

10. ‘Allamah Shihāb Khafājī writes that Indeed the literal meaning of the word that he referred to is true and denying this is stubbornness. However, his claim that he had intended these meanings will not be accepted because this ta’wīl is extremely farfetched. To twist the meaning of word from its apparent meaning will not be heard just as when a man says to his wife that you are taaliq and then gives the explanation that what I meant was that she is open, not tied up [literally, taaliq means extended]. Such a ta’wīl will not be accepted and he will be thought to be delirious. [Nasīm al-Riyadh Sharh Shifa’, Vol. 4, Page 343]



We can go on quoting the righteous Ulama on this topic and the verdict is the same, a single bad word towards the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam under any circumstance, intentional or not, leads to Kufr! Furthermore, any Muslim doubting the Kufr of an abuser of the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam will himself become a Kafir!!

Dear Muslims!! Is it possible that the heart that contains the love and honour of the master of the universe, Sayyiduna Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam, could ever tolerate insults to him, though it may be his Ustadh, Murshid, leader or even father? Would the heart that extremely loves the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam above all creation, ever respect or love one who belittles the unique and faultless Prophet of Allah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam, even though it may be his own child or intimate friend?

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala bring us closer to Him and His Rasool SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. May we live in this World with extreme protection of Iman and leave this world having our Iman safe and sound... Aameen bi jahi Sayyid al-Ameen Alaihi Afdal as-Salati wa at-Tasleem!!

Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala says in the Holy Qur'an


قل إن كان آباؤكم وأبناؤكم وإخوانكم وأزواجكم وعشيرتكم وأموال اقترفتموها وتجارة تخشون كسادها ومساكن ترضونها أحب إليكم من الله ورسوله وجهاد في سبيله فتربصوا حتى يأتي الله بأمره والله لا يهدي القوم الفاسقين
Say, "If your fathers, and your sons, and your brothers, and your wives, and your tribe, and your acquired wealth, and the trade in which you fear a loss, and the houses of your liking - if all these are dearer to you than Allah and His Noble Messenger and fighting in His way, then wait until Allah brings about His command; and Allah does not guide the sinful." [Surah Tauba : 24]

This verse demonstrate encouragement, advice, proof and indication of the necessity to love Prophet Muhammad SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. It is also sufficient to demonstrate that this duty is of tremendous proportion. It is an obligation and the right of the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam.

You will have observed how Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala reprimands those whose love of relatives and property are dearer to them than Allah and His Messenger SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala concludes His warning with the threatening words "then wait until Allah shall bring His command." And from this it is understood that those whose love is other than for Allah and His Messenger SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, are astray and are not guided by Allah.

Sayyiduna Anas Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho tells us that one day the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, told his Companions,

لا يؤمن أحدكم حتى أكون أحب إليه من ولده و والده و الناس أجمعين
"None of you will believe until I am more beloved to him than his children, his father and all people."

Sayyiduna Anas Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho also reported,

ثلاث من كن فيه وجد حلاوة الإيمان : أن يكون الله ورسوله أحب إليه مما سواهما . و أن يحب المرء لا يحبه إلا لله ، و أن يكره أن يعود في الكفر كما يكره أن يقذف في النار
"There are three things that if someone were to seek refuge in them they would experience the sweetness of belief. They are that Allah and His Messenger are more beloved to him than anything else; that he loves a person only for the sake of Allah, and he loathes the notion of reverting to disbelief as much as he would loathe to be cast into the Fire."

Sahih Bukhari, Kitab al Iman, Vol 1, Page 9
Sahih Muslim, Kitab al Iman, Vo1 1, Page 66/67

One day Sayyiduna Umar Ibn al-Khattab Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho went to the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, and told him,

لأنت أحب إلي من شيء إلا نفسي التي بين جنبي
"I love you more than anything except my soul which is between my two sides."

The Prophet replied,

لن يؤمن أحدكم حتى أكون أحب إليه من نفسه
"None of you will believe until I am dearer to him than his own soul."

Sayyiduna Umar Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho immediately replied,

و الذي أنزل عليك الكتاب لأنت أحب إلي من نفسي التي بين جنبي
"By the One who sent down the Book to you, I love you more than my soul which is between my two sides."

The Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, replied,

الآن يا عمر
"Umar, you have reached it." [Sahih al-Bukhari, Kitab al-Iman, Vol 11, Page 522]

Sayyiduna Sahl Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho warned,

من لم ير ولاية الرسول عليه في جميع الأحوال ، و يرى نفسه في ملكه صلى الله عليه و سلم لا يذوق حلاوة سنته ، لأن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال لا يؤمن أحدكم حتى يكون أحب إليه من نفسه
If someone does not think that the Messenger of Allah is his master in all matters or should think that he does not fall under the his jurisdiction he does not taste the sweetness of his prophetic way, because he said, "None of you will believe until I am dearer to him than himself." [Sahih al-Bukhari, Kitab al Iman, Vol 1, Page 9]

The reward for Loving the Prophet
Sayyiduna Anas Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho tells us of the occasion when a man came to the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and asked,

متى الساعة يا رسول الله ؟
"When will the Last Hour come, O Messenger of Allah?"

Whereupon the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, inquired,

ما أعددت لها

"What have you prepared for it?"

The man replied,

ما أعددت لها من كثير صلاة و لا صوم و لا صدقة ، و لكني أحب الله و رسوله
"I have neither prepared an abundance of prayer, fasting or charity for it, but I love Allah and His Messenger."

The Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, told him,

أنت مع من أحببت
"You will be with the one you love."

Sahih Bukhari, Kitab Manaqib Umar, Vol 5, Page 11
Sahih Muslim, Kitab al Birr, Vol 4, Page 2033

Sayyiduna Safwan Ibn Qudama Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho was told the same when he declared his love for the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. [Sunan Tirmidhi, Kitab az-Zuhd, Vol 4, Page 23]

Sayyiduna Ali al-Mutardha Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho narrates that the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, took hold of the hands of his grandsons Sayyiduna Al Hasan and Sayydina Al Hussain Radi ALLAHu Anhum Ajma'een and said,

من أحبني و أحب هذين و أباهما و أمهما كان معي في درجتي يوم القيامة
"Whosoever loves me and loves these two, their father and mother, will receive the same degree as myself on the Day of Resurrection." [Sunan Tirmidhi, Kitab Manaqib Ali, Vol 5, Page 305]

One day a man came to the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, and told him,

يا رسول الله ، لأنت أحب إلي من أهلي و مالي ، و إني لأذكرك فما أصبرحتى أجيء فأنظر إليك ، و إني ذكرت موتي و موتك تعالى فعرفت أنك إذا دخلت الجنة رفعت مع النبيين ، و إن دخلتها لا أراك
"O Messenger of Allah, I love you more than my family and possessions. I always remember you and could not wait to come just to look at you. I bear in mind that I will die and you will die, and I know that when you enter the Garden you will be raised up with the Prophets, but when I enter it I will not see you."

Shortly after Allah sent down the verse,

ومن يطع الله والرسول فأولئك مع الذين أنعم الله عليهم من النبيين والصديقين والشهداء والصالحين وحسن أولئك رفيقا
"And whoever obeys Allah and His Noble Messenger, will be with those upon whom Allah has bestowed grace - that is, the Prophets and the truthful and the martyrs and the virtuous; and what excellent companions they are!" [Surah al-Nisa, Verse 69]

Having received this verse the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, called the man back and recited it to him. [Tafseer Durr al-Manthoor, Vol 2, Page 588]

A man came to visit the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, and could not stop gazing at him. The Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, gently inquired the reason why, whereupon the man replied,

بأبي و أمي ! أتمتع من النظر إليك ، فإذا كان يوم القيامة رفعك الله بتفضيله
"May my father and mother be sacrificed on you! I enjoy gazing at you and on the Day of Resurrection, Allah will exalt you on account of the high esteem in which He holds you!"

It is also said that it was then that Allah sent down the verse mentioned above.

We are given the good news transmitted by Anas that the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, said,

من أحبني كان معي في الجنة
"Whosoever loves me will be with me in the Garden." [Manabil as-Safa lil Suyooti, Page 182]

O Allah, We ask You and turn our face to You, by Your Beloved, the chosen, with You: O our beloved, O (our Master) Muhammad, we ask you to intercede with Your Lord us, so intercede for us with the greatest Lord. O best, pure messenger. O Allah accept his intercession by his honor with You. And make us the best of those who praise and call for peace upon him. And make us the best of those who are near to him and who are received by him. And the best of those who are in love with him, and are loved in his presence... Aameen!!

The Dream of Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu

Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu was a merchant prior to the advent of Islam and once traveled to Syria on business. While there, he had a dream in which he saw the sun and the moon descend from the sky and fall onto his lap. He took hold of them, placed them against his chest, and then stored them in a sheet. In the morning, he met with a Christian priest and sought an interpretation to the dream.
The priest asked him, “Who are you?”
“I am Abu Bakr, a resident of Makkah.”
“Which tribe are you from?”
“The Banu Hashim.”
“And what’s your means of livelihood?”
“Business.”

The priest then said,
“So listen carefully: The Final Prophet, Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him), has arrived, and he is from your tribe. If it wasn’t for him, Allah wouldn’t have created the Earth, the Heavens, or even another prophet. He’s the leader of whatever came first and whatever comes last. O Abu Bakr! Soon you’ll join this deen and become both a minister and a viceroy of it. This is the dream’s interpretation. Listen too, that I’ve read the praise of this Prophet in the Torah and in the Bible, and I’ve already brought Imaan upon him and accepted Islam – only I haven’t revealed this yet to the Christians out of fear.”

Hearing this, the love for the Holy Prophet began to grow within Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu, and he immediately headed back to Makkah, looked for the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him), and cooled his eyes with his blessed sight.
The Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam saw him and said, “Abu Bakr ! You’ve come. Now quickly enter the religion of truth.”
Hadrat Abu Bakr respectfully replied, “Fine, but I’d like to see a miracle.”
The Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said, “Whatever you saw in Syria, and its interpretation by the priest, was solely my miracle.”
Hearing this, Hadrat Abu Bakr replied,
صدقت يارسول الله انا اشهد انك محمد رسول الله
You’ve spoken the truth, and I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” [Jami’ul Mu’jizat, Page 14]

Lesson: We see that Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu is a true Khalifa of Islam, and also that nothing of the happenings of the world is unknown to the Beloved Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him). We also come to know that had it not been for our Beloved Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him), nothing else in this world would have been created!!

Khalifa-e-Majaz (Accredited Successor) of AlaHadrat
Sadr al-Shari'ah Mufti Abu al-'Ula Amjad Ali al-Aa'zmi

BIRTH

Sadr-e-Shariat (“Chief of the Islamic Law”), Badr-e-Tariqat (Shining Moon of the Spiritual Path or Tariqah), Hadrat ‘Allama Mowlana Shah Amjad Ali Aazmi the son of Hakim Jamal al-Din, son of Maulana Khuda Bakhsh, son of Moulana Khairuddin (1299 AH – 1878-9) was born in the district of Ghosi in India, Mohalla “Karimuddin”, district Azamgarh.
His father and grandfather both were renowned scholars in religious theology and expert specialists in the “Unani” (Greek) system of medicine.
When his grandfather, Hadrat Maulana Khudabakhsh went to perform Hajj, then on his return from Makkah al-Mukarramah to Madinah al-Munawwarah, he received the permission (ijazah) for the recitation of Dala’il al-Khayrat.
EDUCATION
He received his elementary education from his grandfather. After that he studied books in general education for the beginners from his elder brother, Maulana Muhammad Siddique. At the end of the elementary course and on the advice of his elder brother, he was admitted to the “Madrasa-e-Hanfiyya” in Jaunpur, for further education under the supervision and guidance of Jami’ Ma’qulat wa Manqulat, Hadrat ‘Allama Moulana Hidayatullah Khan Rampuri, Jaunpuri (d. 1326 ah – 1908 AD – student of Imam al-Falsafa, Mujahid-e-Jalil, Hadrat ‘Allama Fadhl-e-Haqq Khayrabadi). At that time, there was no ‘proper’ rail system and it was also quite difficult to get hold of any transport by which Sadr al-Shari’ah could easily travel from Azamgarh to Jaunpur and vice versa. Hence, he would travel from Ghausi to A’zamgarh by foot. Then from there, he would reach Madrasa-e-Hanfiyya, Jaunpur, via a camel-driven carriage.
On completion of the prescribed course (Dars-e-Nizami) at the Madrasa-e-Hanfia Jaunpur, he presented himself before the great scholar, Shiekhul Muhadditheen (the Master of the people who are elite in the subject field of Hadith), Allama Maulana Wasi Ahmed Surti (d.1334 AH – 1916 AD) for higher education in Ahadeeth and with that end in view, he joined Madrasat-ul-Hadeeth, in PiliBhît and received the Sanad (authenticated certificate or degree) from that Madressa in 1320 AH – 1902 AD.


AS A TEACHER
During this time, AlaHadrat, the Great Reviver of Islam, Maulana Shah Ahmed Raza Khan fadhile-e-Bareilly needed the services of a teacher at the Darul-Uloom, Manzar-e-Islam, which he founded.
Maulana Amjad Ali then left his clinic and proceeded to Bareilly. At Bareilly, he first worked as a teacher. Later on he was also entrusted with the supervision of the Matbah-e-Ahle Sunnah (Printing Press), and was also given presidency of the Education branch of Tehreek Jam’at-e-Raza-e-Mustafa, in Bareilly. These responsibilities he conducted with great endeavour, devotion, in addition to this was the issuance of Fatawas (Juridical Opinions), which he continued as his newly acquired mission.
He took oath of allegiance (Baiy’at) on the hands of the great eminent scholar, faqih, Imam, Muhaddith, Mufakkir, Musannif, Mudabbir, al-Sheikh Mufti Hafiz-o-Qari Imam Ahmed Rida Khan Bareilly and was soon honoured with the bestowment of Khilafat (headship of the various mystical paths, e.g Silsila Qadriya, Chistiya, Soharwardiya, Naqshbandiya, Barkatiya, and so on). He derived affectionate blessings and guidance from his Chief Mentor (shaykh), and quickly rose to the heights and ranks of perfection.
In the matters concerning fatawa, Imam Ahmed Rida Khan had complete reliance and full confidence in ‘Allama Amjad Ali Khan on account of his diligence and competence in the Mission entrusted to him. Paying tributes to his capabilities Imam Ahmed Rida on one occasion stated:
You will find the quality of understanding the religion (tafaqquh) to a greater degree in Maulvi Amjad Ali (Sadr al-Shari’ah) incomparable to others present here (in the field of learning). The reason being that he is adept in announcing, writing and examining the various fatawa. He writes down what I say in response to the inquiries sought in this behalf. He has the adoptive nature; he grasps the point of issue without much effort. He has acquired familiarity with methods and procedures (which is an asset for him in this profession)
During the stay of Hadrat Sadr al-Shariah at Bareilly, the work-load demanding immediate attention had increased tremendously, even to the extent of wonderment and amazement because of the multi-dimensional varieties of the work involved, such as the supervision of the publishing press, proof reading, guidance (briefing) to the pressmen, dispatch of parcels and letters, writing/dictating of the Islamic Juridical fatawas, and so on. Each of which demanded uninterrupted attention. On top of all this, he had to conduct all these work almost single-handedly. The blessings and supplications of Imam Ahmed Rida had revitalised and rejuvenated his spirit of work for the sake of the religion (deen) to such an unbelievable degree that he did not feel any kind of tiredness, mental exhaustion or even any physical disindination, for the work at hand. People often in amazement of this phenomenon, would quite truly exclaim:
Mawlana Amjad Ali Sahib is a work machine
Maulana Amjad Ali saheb contributed and rendered enormous and uncountable services in the initiation and finalisation of the grandiose, matchless and unique translation of the Holy Qur’an, by Imam Ahmed Rida, entitled Kanz al-Iman, under the chronological title Kanz al-Iman fi Tarjamah al-Qur’an (1330A.H., coinciding 1911A.D.)
He adopted teaching as a professional career at his early youth and continued to serve as such till the end of his life. He produced such unique, matchless, peerless and illustrious students/disciples who left an indelible and ever shining marks in the annals of proficient crusaders and research scholars which even the sublime erudition and meteoric learning itself shall be proud of (as achievement by disciples/students) which in fact will itself be a praiseworthy and a pride worthy tribute to the learning and its potentials to attain the high mark of proficiency. For a considerable length of time, he served as a teacher in the renowned centre of knowledge, Madrasah Manzar al-Islam, in Bareilly Shareef.
In the year 1924 A.D./1343 A.H., he went to Ajmer Sharif to join as the Head teacher (Sadr al-Mudarrisin) for Dar al-‘Ulûm Mu’iniyah Uthmaniyah.
In 1933 A.D./1351 A.H., he returned back to Bareilly, and stayed here for a continuous 3 years. After that he joined as the Sadr al-Mudarrisin of Dar al-‘Ulum Hafiziah Shervani, in response to an invitation of Nawab Haji Ghulam Muhammad Khan Shervan ruler Dadun (Ali Garh), and stayed there in that capacity for a full seven years, rendering yeoman service, for the cause of learning and for the uplifting of the institution. The great scholar and administrator Maulana Habib al-Rehman Shervani while delivering a presidential speech on the occasion of the Annual function of the school, in 1937A.D./1356 A.H., paid glorious tributes to the personal and professional qualification of Moulana Amjad Ali in the following words:
Mawlana Amjad Ali is one of the four or five teachers in the whole sub-continent whom I recognise as having been appointed on merits.
At that time, Maulana ‘Abd al-Mushahid Khan was working as an assistant teacher in the same school. He has also expressed his impression in these words:
Maulana Amjad Ali was the Chief teacher (Sadr al-Mudarris) in this institution for more than seven years. He had also worked as a Head Master in various schools at Bareilly, Ajmer, and many other places all around the sub-continent of India. Being an experienced teacher for quite a number of years, he has full command over the profession of teaching.
Up to 1943 A.D./1327A.H. He stayed at Dadun, then he remain at Banaras for a year; thereafter, till 1945 AD/1364 A.H., he taught at Dar al-‘ Ulum Manzar al-Islam, in Bareilly.
In the vicinity of the Ajmer shrines, the descendants and offspring of Prithvi Raj had settled as permanent inhabitants. Though these settlers were converts to Islam, they retained and followed practices, which were openly contrary to Islam, and its teachings, and at times bordering the fringes of atheism, and cults of idolatry. They were also deficient and negligent about the fundamental modes of worship, and their fulfilment with due regard to the Farai’dh (compulsory), and Wajibat.
At the advice and guidance of Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah, his students and disciples chalked a programme of Tabligh (conveying the message of Islam, especially its fundamentals, and basic principles), amongst these nominal Muslims. The programme was religiously implemented. It had pleasant effects. The visits and preaching of young students under the command of the religious leaders worked magic on those eager and God-fearing minds, because their Islamic nomenclature was at stake, unless it was corrected in time and tuned to Islamic Ideology. The verve and zest displayed by these people soon transformed their entire outlook and they clustered around these enthusiastic preachers and they open-heartedly and whole-heartedly welcomed their Iman arousing sermons and resolved to act upon them.

AS A LEADER
Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah was basically and mentally tuned as a religious scholar, but he was also at home and conversant with the politics of the day (which was raging throughout the length and breadth of the sub-continent). And whenever and wherever necessity chose, he defended and extolled the Islamic nation, even as a political entity with sound reasoning and in political parlance. His murshid-e-tariqat (mystic leader), Imam Ahmed Rida Bareilly was a staunch supporter of the “Two Nation Theory”, which was based on the fundamental issue that the nations of idol worshipers (but parast) and idol breaker (but shikan), cannot be joined into a single nation. This was the basic foundation of the demand for Pakistan.
Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah was a true believer of the Muslim nationhood as a separate entity, and so was Sadr al-Afadhil Sayyid Na’eemuddin Muraadabadi, and many of our great and eminent scholars, and he spread no endeavours for the cause of Muslim entity. He preached this theory with full force of his command on the 14th of Rajab 1339, corresponding 24th March 1921, Jami’ah al-‘Ulema al-Hind (which consisted mostly of the Nationalist Muslims) held their convention, at Bareilly in which Maulana Abu al-Kalam Azad and other leaders participated.
The leaders of the Jamiat had come fully prepared, and confident that they will outwit and defeat the opponents of Muslim-Hindu unity. Maulana Amjad Ali, being the president of the Academic branch of Jam’ah al-Raza-e-Mustafa accepted the challenge and presented to the leaders of the Jami’ah ‘Ulema-e-Hind a comprehensive questionnaire based on 70 questions related to the so-called Hindu-Muslim unity, and demanded their reply to the said-questionnaire. But the pro-Hindu “Ulema” of the Jami’ah ‘Ulema-e-Hind failed to send even one reply to the questions posed, in spite of repeated reminders which were sent to them.
The great learned scholar, Maulana Sayyid Na’im al-Din al-Muradabadi, expressed the under-noted opinion of the said questionnaire in a letter addressed to Imam Ahmed Rida Khan:
“Our Master! Your blessings abound
After presenting my greeting of salaam, I beg to submit that after taking the leave of yours, I reached my residence and studied the comprehensive questionnaire. Really these questions are based on “Divine Dispensation”. Surely these questions do not provide the opponents any room for a convincing reply (and definitely they are defenceless at the moment)
At the time of departure, Abu al-Kalam Azad said at the Bareilly-Ry Station: All the various objections raised in the questionnaire are real and correct. Why should people commit errors, which cannot be (adequately) replied and defended. Such errors (falsehoods) provide the other party an opportunity to seize upon it”
On 19-20 Sha’ban corresponding 3/4th October 1350 A.H./1939 A.D., a meeting was held in Muradabad, under the chairmanship of the Khalifa al-Awwal of Imam Ahmed Rida, al-Sheikh, al-‘Allama Mufti Hujjah al-Islam, Hamid Rida Khan. In this meeting, Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah was prominent by his august presence. All this jamiat later became popular with the name of “All India Sunni Conference”
In April 1946, a convention on a grand scale was held at Banaras, under the auspices of Sunni Conference. The session so held was unique and unparalleled as a very large number of Scholars and Saints, to the tune of over 5, 000 in number participated. This convention had assumed the fundamental significance for the establishment and consolidation of Pakistan. In that session, a committee was set up, comprising of prominent ‘Ulema and Masha’ikh to suggest ways, and also to give their views and opinions for a means for the smooth running of an Islamic Government body. Among the distinguished participants, was none other than the name of Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah.

ISLAMIC JURIST
ALLAH, blessed Mawlana Amjad Ali with the bestowment of many different sciences and branches of knowledge and craft to perfection, but he had an intrinsic inclination towards the knowledge, which is regarded as sacred, as Imam Shafi’ once stated:
Every kind of knowledge except for that related to the Holy Qur’an is just a pastime... and except for Hadith, and Fiqh in the religion (Islamic Jurisprudence)
He had a great inclination towards Tafseer, Hadith and Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence). He had the detailed, but complex Islamic rulings of many different topics, of the Fiqh on the top of his tongue. In recognition of his multi dimensional acquisition of the various branches and sciences of knowledge , Imam Ahmed Rida, the Great Reviver of Islam, has conferred the title “Sadr al-Shari’ah” to him during his stay at Dadun (District of Aligarh).
GENIUS WRITER
Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah started writing marginal notes (annotations or hawashi) on the voluminous book of Imam Abu Ja’far Tahawi (d. 321A.H./933A.D.) on hadith, entitled “Sharh Ma’an al-‘athar”, and in the short period of seven months, he completed a comprehensive annotation. The special feature and note of surprise is that the annotation was hand-written with a fine-pointed pen, and that too with one pen; it comprised 450 pages, each page consisting of 35-36 lines! It means that having retired after each days’ arduous preoccupation, which consumed and enormous time and energy he found the time to write about 2 ½ pages each day. The heart rendering tragedy in this connection is that that composition of the marginal notes (Annotation) could not remain preserved (if this masterpiece had survived, it would have surely revolutionised the word of Islamic erudition as a monument of universal acclaim. It is really unfortunate that the Muslim ummah has been deprived of an ever-lasting source of learning and guidance) .
His second masterpiece is Fatawa Amjadia, which is a unique 4-volumed book, comprising of the various fatawa enquired in his service, as regards to many Islamic topics. One must note that these were only a few of the many questions that were asked to him, and most have not been recorded till date. Nonetheless, it is still quite a unique book of Academic Researches. Then he turned to writing books for the children, when the illustrated book of Primary education (in Urdu) was introduced, which contained pen-drawn pictures and drawings to illustrate the various letters of the Urdu alphabet.
Hadrat Amjad Ali wrote a primer (Urdu Qa’idah), containing pictures of lifeless objects. the Qa’idah had the blessing that the child experienced no difficulty in recognising and getting familiar with the alphabets. He could read the book of his standard in a much shorter time than through other methods.
He had the proficiency and skill of explaining very complex, and difficult passages in a simple and easy to understand language.
Bahâr-e-Sharî’at is that universally acclaimed book of Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah which can be justifiably called the Encyclopedia of the Hanafi Islamic Jurisprudence . Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah wrote 17 parts of the 20-chaptered book, and the other remaining 3 parts he could not write due to great subsequent sorrows of the death of members of his blessed family.
Nevertheless, to complete this great service he gave counsel that, due to his persistent illness, any of his students or family members should complete. Hence, the 3 parts were completed by his great students.
The renowned book of fatawa, entitled “Fatawa-e-‘Alamgiri” or “Hindiyya” was compiled by the efforts of more than 500 outstanding scholars at that time. Despite this, there is not much written as regards to which proposition (mas’alah) is the most authentic and which one is weak. The respect that Alamgir showed and had for these great ‘Ulema who compiled Fatawa-e-‘Alamgiri was that whenever they entered his court, ‘Alamgir would immediately stand up in respect for them.
On the other hand, Sadr al-Shari’ah wrote the famous Hanafi Encyclopaedia of Fiqh on his own, and in addition to this, he also made it clear and mentioned which proposition were authentic so that it is easier for the reader to learn and memorise the authentic propositions, without having to refer to books in languages which one could not understand. Furthermore, this book has been written in such a beautiful, but simple manner that not only can the ‘Ulema (scholars) use it, but also the public in general can gain much benefit from it.
If we look at it in this manner, then Bahar-e-Shari’at is a much more beneficial and advantageous service for Islam and the Muslim ummah, in comparison to Fatawa-e-‘Alamgiri compiled by more than 500 outstanding scholars.
This book is said to have been started in writing, sometime in 1915 AD/1334 A.H., and was complete (up to the seventeen parts, then written in 1943 A.D./1362 A.H.). he had the desire to write the remaining 3 more parts, but circumstances did not permit. Within a short span of four years, eleven dear members of his family breathed their last. These bereavements took such a heavy toll of his mental and physical capability that he lost his sight and all the work of writing and completing anything came to a sudden halt.
The initial six parts of Bahâr-e-Sharî’at were personally heard (the author, Sadr al-Shari’ah, reciting them) by al-Sheikh Imâm Ahmed Ridâ Khan. He corrected or modified at carious places and embellished them with his introductory notes. The significant aspect of the Bahâr-e-Sharî’at is that each chapter begins with the verses of the Holy Qur’an, then the various ahâdîth as related to the topic, then an introductory note, followed by a detailed and concise annunciation of the jurisprudential problems and their answers according to the Qur’ân, Hadîth, Sunnah and the aqwal of the ‘Ulema.

JOURNEY TO THE HEREAFTER
Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah had already been blessed by performing his first Hajj ritual in 1337/1922. For the second time, he accompanied his spouse, and set off from Ghosi on the 26th of Shawwal 1367 A.H. the events, which occurred before and also after the event are quite astonishing.
The candle of the love of the Holy Prophet which Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah had in his heart illuminated and burnt even more brightly in this particular journey to Haramain Sharifain (but, actually, the journey to the hereafter). He would ask people to recite the na’at sharif, and would feel emotional after hearing the beautiful verses of the na’at.
As scheduled, in the masses of hundreds of people waiting patiently to see Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah he came to the railway station. At the station in front of the masses of people, he delivered an inspirational speech. Then the car arrived, and Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah departed. From the very beginning of his departure from his house, he felt ill, and in addition to this fact was that rain fell immensely during this journey, which made him deteriorate in health even more. This was why he had a fever, to the extent that on reaching Bombay, he had pneumonia. At the Bombay station, his treatment started. Even after so many days of treatment, he would still be in the state of unconciousness.
Hudur Mufti-e-Aa’zam was also accompanying him on this journey, and because of his regular visit to meet Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah to ask as to how he was, mass of people always came with him.
Once during his visits, a person recited a na’at written by Imam Ahmed Rida, immediately hearing this, Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah opened his eyes, and stated to give him a pillow so that he could sit up. Throughout the time that the na’at was read, Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah sat there, in that position, as though he was meditating.
Hudur Mufti-e-Aa’zam-e-Hind and Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah both were going to depart in the same plane.
However, due to Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah’s illness, Hadrat Mufti-e-e-Aa’zam-e-Hind, after the Maghrib (Sunset) prayers came to pay his final visit and to meet Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah for his last time. With eyes full of sorrowful tears for this great personality, Hadrat Mufti-e-Aa’zam-e-Hind stated:
“Go on (Carry on the final stages of your spiritual journey), I shall follow behind you”
And then Hadrat Mufti-e-Aa’zam-e-Hind departed for his journey to Hajj, and after his departure, Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah’s health became even worse.
Finally, on the 2nd of Dhu al-Qa’dah 1367 A.H, coinciding Monday the 2nd of September 1949, at 12:26pm, this great scholar departed to a celestial journey; instead of the intended pilgrimage, upward to the heaven and as a prelude thereof.
We are belongings of ALLAH and we are to return to Him... Whatever He takes is His, whatever He gives is His, and there is a fixed period for everything.




The following verse: Indeed the pious are amidst Gardens and springs. [15:45] solemnises the death of Hadrat Sadr al-Shari’ah, Badr al-Tariqah, ‘Allama Hakim Abu al-‘Ula Amjad ‘Ali A'azmi Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu.
